Bangladesh Cricket Players
Alok Kapali is a talented but erratic legspinner and a batsman of undoubted potential, Alok Kapali has a burgeoning reputation as an allrounder, particularly in the one-day game. He made a promising Test debut against Sri Lanka in 2002, and impressed with his technique and temperament in an otherwise disappointing match. Batting as high as No. 6, in spite of a first-class average in the mid-teens, he made starts on both occasions without being able to go on, and has since demonstrated a bold attitude towards quick bowling. His bowling has improved, since disappearing for more than five an over on debut, and against Pakistan at Peshawar in August 2003, he became the first Bangladeshi bowler to take a hat-trick in Test cricket, a performance that secured his side their first first-innings lead at the 23rd attempt. Alok was then just 19 years old - he has time very much on his side.
